HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALLANNA
Hi Everyone......It was Allanna's 21st Birthday yesterday on July 18. We held a Wild West themed party on Saturday night and of course.....it was raining...AHHHHH!!! the only rain we have seen for weeks but that didn't dampen a great night.
We had a BBQ in the backyard, a photo booth, that was a real hit with everyone and a karaoke machine. What more could you ask for!!!!
The cake was a TEAM effort. We are all creative in this family. Karlee, Allanna and I had a good try at making our own fondant covered cake.This is the first cake we have made....
What do you think of our effort? Don't look to close it has a few bumps.....LOL
It has vanilla and chocolate layers with butter cream inside and tasted much better than it looked (even if I do say so myself). We cheated and bought the fondant ready made but we baked the cakes, made the butter cream and rolled the fondant and decorated. Karlee made the gorgeous cow on top of the plastic hat. It was stressful at times but the end result was great. It is the first fondant cake we have made. We also made 48 little cupcakes with printed cow discs on top.
Karlee's little cow was so cute....and the rope around the hat and cake is chocolate flavoured fondant. It was so YUMMY......
